Sustainability Science and Practice IDP/co-term Info Session
Want to be in the first cohort of a new MS/MA coterm in Sustainability Science and Practice, learning how to create and lead effective solutions for the 21st century challenges? Come to our information session to find out more about the program.
The sustainability challenges we confront are marked by extreme complexity, urgency, conflicting demands, and often a paucity of resources or political will to address them. Transforming these challenges into powerful opportunities requires a new kind of leader – one who can design the practices and cultivate the partnerships essential to building that future.
This degree program will equip students with the knowledge, mindsets and practical skills needed to understand and intervene in complex systems in service of sustainability – the goal to secure human well-being around the world and across generations.
The proposed program integrates theoretical and conceptual knowledge with practical skills and tools to enable students to develop 1) deep understanding of and capacity to manage complex social-environmental systems, 2) knowledge of behavior, decision making and key strategies of change leaders, and 3) the ability to develop partnerships and design innovations that can have impact at scales that matter.
